Bringing some of the brightest new ‘stars’ to Poole continues, when we present KASPER RIETKERK’S KRSIX.  At SoundCellar, we recognise that the future of contemporary music relies not only on promoting many of today’s A-list jazz musicians, as we continue to do, but also on ensuring that the very best of the next generation receive exposure to discerning audiences.

KRSIX, an instrumental sextet led by saxophonist Kasper Rietkerk, has been making waves in the London music scene since their debut in the spring of 2021. Their dynamic music is performed with great energy and expression, drawing comparisons to a mix between Brian Blade’s Fellowship and Radiohead.

The band recently recorded a debut album ‘The Island’ complete with a string quartet, featuring guest appearances from SoundCellar favourite Emma Rawicz (Kasper is also a member of the Emma Rawicz Jazz Orchestra), Anatole Muster and Immy Churchill (released in June 2024 on Zennez Records, with a launch at Pizza Express Soho in London).

While rooted in jazz, KRSIX’s music is heavily influenced by rock, folk, and blues music. All the music is written and arranged by Kasper, who draws inspiration from his observations and experiences after moving to London. Kasper performs alongside a superb band of young players: Max McLeish (trombone), Alex Lockheart (guitar – coincidentally playing SoundCellar two weeks before his uncle Mark returns to us!), Benji Bown (piano), Jonah Evans (drums), and Toby Yapp (double bass).

We heard the album ‘The Island’ here at SoundCellar and we were instantly hooked, hence why they are coming here to play for our collective delight!  Come along and hear some of the undoubted future stars of jazz, right here at The Grasshopper in Poole.
